For this page, the processes involved in the creation of loft conversions will be explained to help inform the customer should they wish to hire our loft conversions services. From the start, a newly built loft will usually be dark and hot during the Summer. The first thing to do is to increase the amount of light entering into the loft as well as disperse the heat within the loft as well as generally improve air circulation. To do this, parts of the loft walls are removed to allow Velux windows to be inserted (see Fig.1):

After this is done, long pieces of steel beams (called Rolled Steel Joists or RSJs which are commonly found in construction sites) are taken to the loft area by use of a crane so that the RSJs could be used as structural supports for the new loft floors and the loft roof’s ridge (the ridge being the horizontal line formed from where the two diagonally sloping surfaces meet to make peak of a roof).
